Krumov promised the GPS system would have a second display in the municipality’s building. It will track the level of filling of buckets and containers, the location of waste collection trucks and their load volume.
Equest has purchased 15 new trucks. Krumov promised the renewal of the car park would continue. He said manual sweeping was an anachronism in the 21st century, but there was no way to sweep sideways using machines because of the cars parked on them.
Equest is leading negotiations with three companies from Germany, Austria and France and will select a strategic partner within a month. Krumov said negotiations with the Austrian companies, which is responsible for the cleaning of London and Madrid, were in advanced stage.
Krumov explained he had an idea to build an information call center, where citizens could be informed about the work of the waste collection companies.
Answering a question of the municipal councilors, Krumov promised to improve waste collection services, but warned setting high criteria would need higher budget. The municipality has allocated 50.5 mln leva for waste collection this year.
